Description

Via George Por:

"Sustrans is the UK's leading sustainable transport charity, our vision is a world in which people choose to travel in ways that benefit their health and the environment. Every day we are working on practical, innovative ways of dealing with the transport challenges that affect us all. One of these projects is 'DIY Streets' ‐ a project that brings communities together to help them redesign their streets, putting people at their heart and making them safer and more attractive places to live. It's an affordable, community‐led alternative to the home zones design concept. The workshop will help people to understand theories around traffic calming, (that won't be as boring as it sounds, we promise!), along with exploring practical examples of what can be achieved on a local level, how to ensure as much of the community is involved as possible, and how to face any challenges that may come up."
